To be announced soon - an exciting new partnership between the Falkland Islands Government, via the Customs & Immigration Service, and Islands employers – the Registered Employers Scheme (RES).
Maximum validity of work permits
On 21st February 2018 Executive Council approved a recommendation to allow the Principal Immigration Officer to grant or renew a work permit so as to be valid for a period of up to four years when required.
It is hoped that this action will help to mitigate retention and recruitment issues for employers, ahead of more comprehensive changes, by creating more job security for staff who are holders of work permits.
Employers will be asked to provide evidence of the duration of employment offered with the application for a new permit.
